Connected Teachers Research
Teacher Wellbeing in Australia
Along with three partners, Mind With Heart completed a major research project on teacher wellbeing in Australia. The departments of education in Queensland and New South Wales recruited 20 schools. Teachers Health funded the project. Mind with Heart delivered the intervention and the Australian Catholic University conducted the evaluation.
Teachers received an 8-week course focusing on their own wellbeing. The research finds that the mindfulness and connection exercises undertaken by staff have a statistically significant positive impact on wellbeing. Publication of the research paper is imminent.
